Hello i have a bunch of server hard drives that our organization is getting rid of and i would like to wipe the data before we get rid of them. I've been using Drivewipe but the version i have doesn't handle multiple drives are there any free or relatively priced products out there that can handle this?

You leave all the disks in the server and then wipe them with Drivewipe? Or do you attach them to a workstation where you do the wiping?

Personally, at work we use WipeDrive, by WhiteCanyon Software.

http://www.whitecanyon.com/

We have a machine that host the program, then we connect the computers/laptops we want to "e-ban" (that's how we call that process) to the same VLAN the machine is on, do a network boot to it and it launches the wipe process. It also supports multiple drives.

I connect them to a workstation but my version only supports one drive at a time.

Then WipeDrive could work for you :) The other solutions listed by quietman might too (I never used them, except DBAN, for personal use).

You can easily try several and decide what works best for you.
